Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice

There's nothing like a Friday night, a good movie & some takeout. After a long week of cooking, I've always made Friday my night to grab takeout and give myself a vacation from the kitchen.

It's a bit harder to do while on Whole30 because there are very few restaurants that have compliant Whole30 food. So I took the liberty of making a takeout favorite, fried rice, and mixing it into a Whole30 compliant meal.

It's full of flavor and can all be made in 1 pot. Let's get to it, you'll never miss your usual chinese takeout with this meal!
